I'm not finding any work

I am on disability and need a very light duty job with about 5-10hours a week. I need some extra money. I'm not finding anything. This really sucks. Any at home jobs I find you have to have your own computer which I cannot afford to buy one, it is a scam or you have to go into their call center full time for x amount of months for training.
I was thinking of maybe just babysitting only one child for part time hours but it never works out. The parent wants you to go to their house and don't want your kids there (understandable so).
I can't do walking more than a block or so so dog walking is out. I've tried pet sitting but haven't got anything on that.

Your problem is "very light duty". No one is hiring for that.

Well I can't fix that "problem". My health isn't fixable.

You pretty much want a job, where you sit and do nothing all day. Does that make sense to you, really?

You're never going to find a job like that. Might as well not work at all.

I understand you didn't say that, but if you take a step back this is the type of job you're looking for. The only thing you could do is try searching for Data entry jobs. I sit all day. The only thing I do is get up to eat or use the bathroom.

That's how the world works, you want to be paid for a job then it requires doing something more then sitting around. You might as well just stay home and do nothing.

The only thing I can think of is a receptionist of some sort. Good luck.
